Do you sometimes feel overwhelmed with creating a career and life that’s meaningful and makes you happy?
Do you look around at others who seem to be doing what they love and wonder how they figured it out and got there?
Have traditional job seeking strategies not lead you to the kind of work that you’re excited about?
It’s time for a different approach
to building a happy and fulfilling life and career.
Life Design Series: Building a Meaningful Life
Our Life Design Series consists of six conversations and exercise-heavy sessions aimed at challenging you to think about your life differently and test out new ways of approaching your decisions.
Topics and exercises borrowed from Stanford's Bill Burnett and Dave Evans, and their Designing Your Life book provide the backdrop to a remarkably positive and doable approach to career and life planning.
Whether you're interested in re-evaluating or charting new career or life choices, you'll apply design thinking techniques to tackle your big questions in a fun and collaborative way.
You'll walk away with a fresh approach, tools, momentum, and a community of new connections that enrich your perspective and creativity to help you move forward.

About the Facilitator:
Shannon Romines is a nonprofit communications professional with a passion for self-improvement--her own and others'--and the ways we leverage community to bring out the best in ourselves. When Shannon heard Emily recommend the book "Designing Your Life" for the upteenth time, she had an idea: "The authors recommend going through the book with a group, I'm looking for a group, and Emily's clients must be, too." The result was a collaboration to adapt the book into a 6-week workshop series, which Shannon began leading independently with the fourth cohort. She loves facilitating this process for people, and witnessing the ways a supportive community can be a launching pad for personal growth and positive change.
